Here We Go!

Baby Toddler On the Go

With your child on your lap, pretend you’re riding together on different things. First say, “We’re on a horse. Neigh” while bouncing up and down. Then say, “Now we’re in a race car” and move quickly from side to side. Watch their reaction to the motions and repeat the ones that they like.

See what your child is learning

Switching between different ways of moving gives your child practice with responding flexibly to a changing situation. You’re helping them learn to focus on what’s happening, a skill that is essential for learning and life.
